This is a fantastic post by our friend and colleague, Andrea Wool. Andrea is a personal trainer and Hashimoto’s warrior and now shares her message of strength and empowerment with women worldwide.
Most of our clients have asked their prior practitioners, “Why do I still feel so badly when I’m doing everything ‘right?’” To which they often hear, “I dunno, you’re a tough nut to crack.” Here are my theories on why this is so prevalent…
Wait, I’ve got what? Whether you’re newly diagnosed or Hashimoto’s is an old friend, the language of thyroid health and immune system function can feel opaque and technical. Let’s break it down…
Our programs aren’t “weight loss programs,” but our clients typically lose weight. Why? Because we work with people to improve their health, which typically results in…weight loss.
Only one in six people who are overweight report maintaining a 10 percent weight loss for at least a year after a calorie-restrictive, hunger-inducing diet. But there’s good news – there’s a process that involves losing weight WITHOUT being hungry all the time.
I enjoy pulling the veil back on the coaching process, but I also like writing about it because it reminds me not to always default into “expert + explainer” mode, especially when a client says they want to dive into a pack of Oreos.
